Homo makes visible the experience of intimacy of a human being who inhabits an interior space, private and reserved for the solitude of a single inhabitant. The room, as a metaphor for the primordial house, is the image of lost intimacies. The Homo privatus seeks through an act of introspection the encounter with himself, the awareness of his corporeality, that is, of a certain identity in relation to the other, through the multisensory experience, and especially haptic with the matter that surrounds him. In Homo the epidermal and visible layer of the human being is revealed, his natural body expresses the memory of a personal history versus the memory of a personal history versus the visual representation of a collective history with stereotyped, iconic, mythologized and idealized bodies. Homo is the epiphany of a narcissistic act, of a metamorphosis.
